OSTERSUND, Sweden - Martin Fourcade overcame four penalties and windy conditions to win the mens 12.5-kilometre pursuit on Sunday for his second victory in two days at the biathlon World Cup.The Frenchman finished in 33 minutes, 54.9 seconds. Russias Anton Shipulin, with one penalty, was 10 seconds behind. Norways Emil Hegle Svendsen was third with two penalties, trailing Fourcade by 26.3 seconds.Calgarys Nathan Smith was 16th in 35:25.8.Fourcade, a double Olympic champion in Sochi, finished 81st in the mens 20K individual race earlier this week. He regained his form on Saturday by winning the 10K sprint with clean shooting and leading from start to finish.The most important thing I am taking away from here is confidence, Fourcade said after Sundays race.Smith was on pace with the leaders until his final stop at the range, where he missed three shots,.Gliding onto the mat for that standing I had in my mind that a clean would probably guarantee a medal, Smith said. Unfortunately I missed my first three shots. I was feeling quite a bit of fatigue going in and I swear it was a little windier than normal for those 25 seconds.In the womens event, Finlands Kaisa Makarainen clinched the 10K pursuit in 35:01.7 with three penalties.Ukraines Valj Semerenko was 47.9 seconds behind, beating Dorothea Wierer of Italy in a fight for second by just 0.4. Both women had four penalties.Rosanna Crawford of Canmore, Alta., was 14th in 36:50.0.My legs were tired from four races this week. It always takes a bit to get used to racing this much, said Crawford, who sits 12th overall in the World Cup standings. Overall Im happy with how the week went. I know there is so much potential this year so Im really looking forward to the rest of the season.Crawford missed one shot in each of her four rounds of shooting, which dropped her four spots in the standings.Missing one target isnt that bad, but when you miss one every time it can be pretty frustrating, she said. In 20-shot races you need to shoot 85 per cent if you are starting behind.— With files from The Canadian Press.

Adidas NMD Uitverkoop . - First-timer Chris Harris Jr.NEW YORK -- Paul Pierce called the Miami Heat a juggernaut. He insisted they are still the team to beat. So yes, the Brooklyn Nets have plenty of respect for the two-time defending NBA champions -- and no fear. Pierce made that clear again Sunday, a day after the Nets Game 3 rout that cut Miamis lead to 2-1 in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Brooklyn will try to even the series at home Monday night. "Youve got to have that type of mental ego against a juggernaut. You go against the best, a lot of series are won on fear factor, like, or non-belief. When you have that non-belief, then you have no chance," Pierce said after practice. "What I try to do in this locker room, or with my teammates, is just try to give them belief that we can beat this team. Theyre not unbeatable." The Heat had been in these playoffs until the Nets 104-90 victory on Saturday night. Miami hadnt even faced a fourth-quarter deficit, but was out of the game long before then after Brooklyn dominated the third quarter to build a huge lead. "The defeat was complete," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It was both sides of the basketball. "It was like trying to plug in holes in a leaking dam. There was so many things that were not in our favour really on both ends of the court." The Nets made 15 of 25 3-point attempts, outrebounded Miami 43-27, and limited LeBron James to two baskets over the final three quarters after he had 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting in the first. Brooklyn swept the regular-season series, though none of the games was anywhere near as easy as Game 3. Yet the four victories gave the Nets a confidence against the Heat that some other opponents may not have. "We just had a little success against them during the regular season. We played them well and we feel like we match up well wiith them," Nets guard Deron Williams said.dddddddddddd "And if were on top of our game, were playing defence the way were capable of playing, like we did the last game, we put ourselves in a good position to win." Pierce did his part after the Nets were routed in Game 1, asking coach Jason Kidd to switch up the defence so he could guard James. And after he and the Nets did such a good job of it over the final three quarters of Game 3, Pierce said the Nets wanted to show the Heat that they werent scared of them. "Why should it be a fear factor?" James said. "Its just basketball. Were not trying to win a war here, its just basketball. Thats all it is. Were all grown men, who cares about whos fearing who? "Weve never been a team that talks. We dont get into that, and weve never been a bulletin board team. We just want to play the game the right way and we give ourselves a good chance to win if we play our type of basketball and last night we didnt do that." Miami had won its previous eight post-season games and followed every loss with a victory last year. To do that in this series, Spoelstra said the Heat would not only need better effort and urgency, but also more attention to the little details. Pierce is expecting that, as well as in Game 5 back in Miami on Wednesday night. Even though the Heat didnt look it Saturday, he believes they are just as good as the recent versions that ended his seasons in Boston. "Definitely. Theyre well-seasoned now. They know how to win," Pierce said. "Theyve won two championships, theres nothing they havent been through. So the one thing you always hear, its kind of a cliche, is never underestimate the heart of a champion, and you know thats what they have under their belts. So you know, theyre the team to beat."
